But what about the humble skirt? There's a lot to be said for this often forgotten wardrobe staple. Aside from effortless styling options, skirts are incredibly comfortable, timeless, and offer essential airflow during sweltering temperatures. You can dress them up or down, and depending on the style, even wear them longer into the fall or winter than a typical sundress.
